Is anybody here a vegetarian?

Hey ya!

Perhaps the question has been asked loads of times before, but just wondering how many of us were vegetarian? If you are, have you struggled with it or was it an easy thing to convert to? Was the temptation to eat meat too great that you've succumbed to going back to being a meat eater?

Take Care.

I'm vegetarian. Have been for... just over four years now? Maybe more, I can't remember. For me it was the easiest thing in the world to do because I never liked eating meat, ever since I could remember. For the last four-five years I wasn't a vegetarian, the only meat I ate was chicken (turkey on Thanksgiving and Christmas) but it was so rare that I knew I could live without it.

In the first couple of months I kept having dreams about eating hotdogs and burgers (which is weird because I never really liked either) and I would realize halfway through eating it that I was vegetarian! Haha, crazy dreams.

Unfortunately I have had a few mishaps with eating things that secretly had meat in them. I'm normally insanely careful when I eat something at a restaurant. I learned that sometimes baked potatoes will come with bacon bits (even if they're fake) baked right into them, lol.

But yeah. I've also tried on many occasions to convert to veganism, but it never lasted more than a month, lol. [=

I am - Have been since I was 8, so for 9 years now.

I grew up on a beef farm and saw exactly what went on in the meat industry - I didn't want anything to do with that!!

I tried to be for quite a while, I love animals and wish it could be a different way but I lacked the will power to walk past Chinese restaurants and know that someone somewhere was eating sweet and sour chicken... someone who wasn't me

It was really easy, but I've found you have to be very careful with eating sweets, because most of them have gelatine in <_<

I'm a veggie too! I have been for about six months or so. I started to not like meat anymore, so I just thought, maybe I should just give it up. I don't agree with the way that the animals are treated but I will drink milk and eat eggs too. Can't live without my milk.

I'm a veggie. Have been for coming up seven years now. I've never really found it hard as I've never really liked meat, the only one I actually liked was chicken but that wasn't enough to stop me. I've never once missed eating meat and don't (seriously) plan on me going back to eating meat.

i was but now am not

i was until about a month back when i decided my heath had to come first. i jst wasnt getting all the right goodness and stuff.
Went back to eattin meat and my god i feel so much healthier, i have more energy, a better appertite and iv not been ill half as much and i get ill alot.
i can see now that meat is an important part of ones diet and although i still strongly disagree with the way the animals are treated before they make it to our plates i can find reasurance in knowing that animal died to help me to live because i was slowly killing myself with the little amount of veggie food i actualy ate.

I am, have been since I was about 9, so for nearly 12 years now.
I don't get the temptation to eat meat at all, I don't like the thought of eating muscle etc. Although apparently I have eaten meat once or twice when I've been very very drunk, though I don't remember, lol!

I've been vegan since I was 9 and vegetarian since I was 6. I've never had the temptation to eat meat or dairy, I'd rather lick the tires of a tractor.

I've been one for the past 4 years. I've not wanted to eat meat at all since being a vegetarian. I'd rather top myself than eat an animal.

I can't see any good from eating something that used to live. It's just plain cruel.
And to see the amount of things that are tested on animals sickens me. It's disgusting.

Although I have these views, I would never ever try and force someone to stop eating meat. It's their decision, just like it's mine to not eat meat.

I've been a vegetarian for almost nine years. I didn't find it very hard, and after the first few months, the thought of ever eating meat again was unthinkable, and as time went on I just became even more repulsed by it. Unfortunately, going vegan hasn't been as easy, I've been working on it for nearly two years, lol



But it's too late to be real, no time to be strong enough
just time to leave it all behind, memory has become pain

You can't be bothered to decide whether you live or die
